Breaking Through to the Other Side
The planetary alignments occurring over the several day period leading into the Full Moon eclipse of May 24 (May 25 GMT) create a building inner inflammatory emotional tension that needs to express. There are three T-Squares that occur on the third of our trilogy of eclipses that contribute to this tension. The key here is not to project this tension outward, blaming others or our life experience, but to choose to change our actions and behavioral patterns in ways that serve to resolve this inner tension and that lead to our greater fulfillment in life and in our relations. This enitre energetic supports us to break on through to the other side.
T-Squares are like loaded cross-bows that need to fire.
The Moon conjoins the North Lunar Node on May 23, within the Pollinating (Gibbous) Phase of the lunar cycle, preceeding the eclipse. The Moon’s North Node conjunction activates the already formed Juno Lunar Nodes T-Square, specifically stimulating the North Node part of the T-Square. It impels us to choose new paths of experience rather than acquiescing to patterns and conditions of the past. Juno is our asteroid of covenant relations, mutual respect and equality.
This T-square brings an emphasis and focus to relationships of all types, or should I say, to the resonance created by the issues and ideals within self that formulate the relations we draw and the nature of our experience in our relationships. It impels a need to address these issues in order to move forth into more fulfilling experience. This T-Square’s energetic is a direct part of this eclipse theme stimulating relationships to break ground into new territory and to claim a new level of mutual freedom and fulfillment.
The asteroid Vesta and Comet ISON move into position to create a Vesta-ISON-Uranus-Pluto T-Square. Vesta aspects Uranus and Pluto at the exact time of the third of seven Uranus-Pluto triggers, occurring in the 2012-2015 Uranus-Pluto Square, taking place from 2015 through 2015. Aside from the unique energetic created by the T-Square and Comet ISON's stimulus and message, Vesta brings attention to our focus, dedication and commitment to achieve the changes we want in our lives—do we have it?
The Moon then moves to its Full Moon Eclipse location in Scorpio, to create yet another T-Square, this one with Neptune, bringing our focus to the manifestaion of our higher ideals, dreams and visions. All of this creates a very dynamic, catalytic and expressive Full Moon Eclipse.
The Time of Global Change is at Hand.
What is the end of the World for some is a New World for those who realize it is.
The Full Moon marks the culmination point in the lunar cycle, the climax, the point of excitement and celebration. The hours leading up to the Full Moon provide a time of "vision and enthusiasm." The time just after Full Moon is a one of "realization of the lunar month's theme," a time to kick back and relax, to allow our realizations to surface in consciousness.
The Full Moon occurs on May 24 (25 GMT) in early sidereal Scorpio and produces a Penumbral Lunar eclipse. The eclipse is visible in North and South America and western Africa.
Eclipse Begins: 03:53:11 UT
Greatest Eclipse: 04:10:00 UT
Eclipse Ends: 04:26:56 UT
This is a rather special lunar eclipse in that it is the first of the Saros Series #150. The Star alignments of this eclipse not only define the theme of the Full Moon Eclipse but also that of the entire Saros Series.
Generally, eclipse lunar cycles mark a time of shifting into a new octave of experience. They offer a time to resynchronize our selves with the ever-changing cosmic currents supporting our evolutionary progression in consciousness. Eclipses tend to bring about endings and new beginnings. How dramatic these changes can be is a function of star alignments (where in the zodiak they occur) and other aspecting planets occurring at the time of the eclipse. Although eclipses effect the entire Earth, they are more influential along the eclipse path. Eclipse influences 'generally' last about six months, until the next eclipse occurs, however this is not a hard and fast rule.
The area of our personal lives in which eclipses emphasize is a function of where they occur in the natal (AND especially a relocated) chart. They can have a far greater effect in our lives when they conjoin other natal planets and personal points by ±5°. Eclipses bring emphasis to issues related to the chart area and planets involved. They can bring these issues to a crisis point, which creates the need to work on these areas of life over the months ahead. Eclipses can be stressful or create upheaval if change is resisted or if addressing the emphasized issues are avoided.
Solar eclipses offer opportunity to redefine concepts of self and the roles we play in the world, or how we articulate ourselves in life. They are about shifting octaves in the nature of our self-perception and self-expression, and addressing issues that keep us from doing so. They can invite a new beginning, way of life, or new way of participating in life.
Lunar eclipses tend to be more emotionally palpable in nature, how we feel about things on the inner and how we respond to our life experience. They are about releasing the emotional bonds within ourselves that glue us to involvements that are less than we truly want or deserve. They are also about the emotional and experiential aspects of our relations with others and with the world. Lunar eclipses provide opportunity for an emotional resynchronization.
Our Full Moon eclipse conjoins Dschuba and Graffias of Scorpio, the head of the Scorpion; Yed, the hand of Ophiuchus, and the stars forming the left leg of Ophiuchus. Ophiuchus stands over the Scorpion with his left foot upon the Scorpion's head.
Dschuba and the stars forming the Scorpion's head impel us to graduate in consciousness, moving from our repetitive patterns in life that perpetuate an experience of entrapment and a sense of victim consciousness (entrapped in the clutches of the Scorpion / scales of Libra), to taking personal responsibility for co-creating our reality and evolving out of the patterns of the past. Dschuba impels us to become responsible creators of our lives rather than victims of it.
Yed, the hand of Ophiuchus, conjoins the Head of the Scorpion. Ophiuchus is demonstrable example of one who has attained self-mastery over the raw creative forces of life. Yed, the "hand of death," does not refer to a dark sinister force out for our demise, but it does reveal that something must die—an entire modality of being, the personality-level egoic self-importance façade justifying our life experience as if we are victims of life so we can participate from the maturity a soul-awakened being, responsible for our experience, our actions, and their results. Nearby Han, the left knee of Ophiuchus, and the stars forming the left leg of Ophiuchus, articulate the actualization of this transmutational process. They impel us to actively create a new stance in life based from this level of soul-awareness and self-mastery.
Our Full Moon Eclipse completes our eclipse trilogy by inviting us to emotionally and experientially claim a new level of self-empowerment, to take responsibility for our life experience and to demonstrably create and steer our evolutionary future.
The first Lunar Eclipse, occurring in the previous Revati Lunar Cycle, conjoined Centaurus-A, the "Temple of the Centaur," also the theme of the new Earth-Saturn synodic cycle staring then as well. It was also opposite the Mars-Sun-Pallas-Venus synthesis. This lunar eclipse inspired us to transcend into and to become clear upon our soul-level intent and purpose, which lies deep beneath the surface waves of life experience. It brought attention to our responsibility to bring forth and live that purpose in our lives. In the context of the Revati lunar theme, the eclipse provided opportunity to resynchronize how we respond to our life experience, to how we are using our resources and to how we respond to money and financial issues. It impels us to equilibrate the expressive and receptive aspects of ourselves.
Our Pallas-Ruchbah Solar Eclipse of May 10 brings (this luanr cycle) our attention to our position and expression in the world, to relinquish any righteous attitudes about what we deserve that keep us from living a greater expression and attaining what we deserve. It invites the artistic expression of our creative intelligence for solution beyond the duality-based judgments of this side verses that side. It impels us to demonstrate a greater justice from the equilibrium of the receptive and expressive.

The Lunar Eclipse occurring now, brings us back to the inner, and invites us to embody these principles at the emotional level, to demonstrably live and responsibly co-create a new destiny by the conscious choice to step forth from any past patterns of entrapment. It motives us to embody the principle that we are responsible for creating our life experience—from the inside out.
The May 24-25, 2013 Lunar Eclipse (the last in the April-May trilogy of eclipses) occurs at the exact location of Comet ISON's climatic turning in November, conjoining Dschuba and Yed Ophiuchus. This eclipse sets up a key energetic over the following six months for ISON's most prominent arival to its climatic hot spot in November. Dschuba says: If you want to change your life course, change your life course. Comet ISON dramatically points this out, as it whips around the Sun)!
This Eclipse Trilogy sets up the next six months-wave upon which we ride into the November 2013 eclipse series, consisting of the October Lunar Eclipse and the November Solar Hybrid Eclipse in mid-sidereal Libra (conjoining the Southern Cross / Northern Crown). The latter Solar Eclipse (November 3, 2013) lunar cycle prominently coincides with the "Uranus-Pluto Synodic Square," which is the actual (Heliocentric) square (or turning) in the Uranus-Pluto cycle that was set in motion in the mid-60s. Pluto, at the time of the synodic square, also conjoins Jupiter's South Node in mid-sidereal Sagittarius, creating another prominent energetic in the November turning, also presented in the Uranus-Pluto Square article. The placement of the May 24 Lunar Eclipse coinciding with the location of Comet ISON's climatic arrival around the Sun, at the time of the Uranus-Pluto Synodic Square and the November Solar Eclipse, is a primary revealer of Comet ISON's message.
